Are you suffering from back pain? Do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff and sore? Then an Inversion Therapy Table may be the answer for you. Inversion Therapy uses a flatbed feature that is padded and is connected to a metal frame with hinges. You step into the device, strap yourself in and slowly move the table so that it is in an upside down position. In theory, putting your body in an upside down position helps to take the pressure off the discs, bones and joints in your lower back. It is sometimes called gravitational traction.
That is why this type of therapy may be the answer to your problems. It not only removes the pressure on your spine but can help to relax the muscles. Many people who have suffered with lower back pain have used this therapy and have found significant relief from the pain.
A week barely goes by without a new and innovative form of workout breaking on to the market. Since the birth of Jazzercise in the 60s, the fusion of different forms of exercise has offered almost limitless possibilities for new products and routines. But in this rich landscape, some staples of the training circuit are so elemental that they will never be eclipsed; the push-up, the crunch and perhaps the most iconic – the chin-up.
Characterised by their simplicity, and relying mainly on resistance against your own body weight to strengthen and tone muscle, exercises like these require little or no equipment. Chin-ups are the exception to the rule here and the market is replete with options to cater every need. Indeed, it can be confusing when trying to work out which setup is right for your home gym. Fear not dear reader, for what follows will demystify the process and make choosing the right equipment for you simple.
